Default Reflections Urban Abstract L.A. Style

Here's a slightly different take on the urban abstract reflection idea, taken several years ago. While I think most people like this first one better, the second one appeals to my somewhat whacky sense of humor (and exemplifies how absurd I find certain palm trees).

Looks like a bunch of aliens discussing the urban LA scene. Clever.

Nice theme ;-) Great eye for the balance of abstraction and realism!

Thanks, glad I'm not the only one that sees the fun in this scene.

The distortion in the glass is interesting. I wonder how much it changes as the sun makes the glass hotter. Nice shots MtnGal.

I can see either one of those pictures as a pano going across a whole wall of a room or down the length of a long hall way.

Bynx - not sure if the distortion changes as the temperature changes. If I thought of it at all, I assumed the distortion was caused by pressure and inconsistencies in the glass itself, but really don't know. The funny thing is that I'm not sure which building these are - I went back once to see if I could do something else with the scene, but couldn't figure it out.

Calicajun - thanks for the compliment, I agree that it would be fun to have something like the first one as a pano on a long wall.
